Bead Dreamer, Savannah Georgia
June 2, 2007
After the disappointing experience at Beadstro on Thursday, I’m pleased to say that Savannah DOES have a decent bead store.
Bead Dreamer, located at 407 A East Montgomery Crossroads, is a good sized shop in a small strip mall. The shop appears to be an old office that was never converted into a single open space, so there are several small “offices” that contain beads in addition to the main showroom.
Prices are reasonable, and if you have a tax-exempt certificate, please be sure to ask about discounts. Using a debit card, I received a 35% discount on items not already marked down.
The shop has lots of glass, crystals, vintage, some gemstones, and a nice selection of pewter, silver, copper, and other metals. Lots of naturals (shells, wood, bone) and the largest selection of bulk chain I’ve seen in any LBS.
To top it off, you will be treated to genuine Southern hospitality by the staff…friendly service and light conversation will enhance your shopping experience.
The only beef I had about Bead Dreamer was that the baggies to place my purchases in as I walked around the store weren’t readily available. I like to be able to grab as I’m standing somewhere, and all the little baskets (with baggies and Sharpies for marking prices) were located in the front of the store.
Bead Dreamer receives a thumbs up from Beading Help Web!
